In this new series of nine works, Connie van Rijn experiments with representation, abstraction and medium. These works are layered, utilizing the ways light reacts with surface and travels through translucence to create complex and emotive compositions.

Connie van Rijn is a Peterborough-based artist who received her MFA in painting and B.Ed in Integrated Arts at York University. She studied Experimental Arts at OCA (now OCADU), ceramics at Sheridan College School of Design and psychiatric nursing at Endegeest Psychiatric Hospital in Oestgeest, Netherlands. Her work is in private collections in Paris, Amsterdam, New York City, Vancouver and Toronto.
